Extracts of Jurys for Inquisitions

The Inquisitions are ‘treasury’ documents, recording the rights and privileges of the crown over land held by tenants-in-chief in Ireland. The Inquisitions Post Mortem were surveys undertaken by the court of chancery or exchequer at the time of death of the landholder. The earliest start in 1276 but there is a notable gap between the reign of Henry VI and c. the 1530s. The resumption after 1609 indicates the revival of crown government in Ireland.
